Sharm-el-Sheikh lies near the southernmost tip of the Sinai Peninsula where the Straits of Tiran meet the Gulf of Aqaba. Sharm-el-Sheikh serves as the starting point for an excursion into the desert and to St. Catherineâ€™s Monastery, known as the oldest Christian monastery in the world. For water-sports fans, Sharm-el-Sheikh and Na'ama Bay offer spectacular possibilities. The waters of the Red Sea and its coral reefs harbor colorful creatures that greet snorkelers and divers in this underwater paradise.
